The ads seemed too good to be true. A delicious, no calorie, gluten free noodle. How could it be?
These noodles are the strangest things. The Nooodles and the Miracle Noodles are made from yam flour where the Shirataki Noodles are made from soy. They come in a bag of liquid and they feel like something that should only be served at Halloween. Very slimy and strange. But…once you rinse them off they are the most delightful treat!
We have used them for a quick dinner with marinara sauce and some leftover meat and veggies.
We have used them as the noodles in Vietnamese spring rolls.
We have used them as a quick after school snack and in soup.
The Nooodle company has really tasty meals too. I tried the marinara and teriyaki versions and think I might become addicted to the teriyaki meal. 90 calories for the entire entree and it is REALLY good!
When I open the bags of noodles, I drain them and rinse them. Then I take a scissors and cut them into pieces. Otherwise, you might end up with one giant long noodle that will be hard to eat.
I think the concept of fast, tasty and low-calorie is appealing to many of us. I was so skeptical when I saw the strange ads for the no calorie noodles. But I have to say, if I were you, I’d give them a try. They work well for our household.
